    Awesome news, can't wait to see the results....

    Its going really well. All my worries about tuning this kit and handling boost control were gone as soon as we did the first rev of the ACN 91 octane map. Like Tony said tuning so far has really been a joy on my end. Its really awesome to work on tuning something so different yet so similar to OEM. Not a single issue to report other than Tony's serpentine belt shredding and him being really busy. We should be done tuning with ACN 91 soon and it'll be dyno time. We're using a flat level closed stretch of road for all the testing and vdyno is our little friend for now. I won't speak to any numbers at this time though to avoid getting burned and wasting a weekend explaining vdyno vs. dyno again Click here to enlarge

    It sounds like all the work tony has put into doing boost control and O2 sensor placement the right way is paying off.

    Don't forget retrofitting OEM wastegate actuators. Wastegates are set to open position by default now just like OEM. Out of box these GTXs come with wastegates closed like almost all other turbos out there. This on its own is a huge help when it comes to tuning.

    Sticky the M3 is still a 3 series, just a M variant (in case you didn't know Click here to enlarge )

    Hopefully it gets a 'buff-as-$#@!' HPFP that can be swapped over to the N54 as an upgrade.

    Knowing BMW, probably going to stroke that n54 and put the same turbo's in LOL. Bam, m3.

    or it'll get the same one but slightly more reliable and since it comes with 415~hp factory, the HPFP will limit at the same level the N54 does so there's even less to gain

    sounds like something BMW could do

    on the other hand, a beefy HPFP would be amazing, and convenient haha

    If the new M3 comes with a decent head (S54 flow numbers anybody?) that could be swapped to the N54, with slightly larger combustion chambers, that would be nice...

    Pipe dreams aside keep up the good work.

    Ya there isn't going to much of anything that applies from the F80 M3 to the N54.

    This would be the best case scenario, let's hope the fuel system somehow can be applied as I would assume BMW won't go throw HPFP nightmares again...

    lol. Maybe, maybe not. If you read some of the lit on the N55, BMW definitely learned a few things from the N54 and changed them on the N55. Solenoid vs piezo injectors, block oil drains, etc.

    I expect an all new engine ideally but if not, then the n55 style block w/better internals, valvetronic and a significantly higher flowing head, turbos, exhaust, better fuel system and cooling.

    The n54 can clearly make the power but as Ms tend to be more track oriented, it'll have the parts and personailty to support that. I suspect it will be similar to the S63 and top out around 7k rpm.

    Stage 2 betas are starting to ship tomorrow. Stage 3 tuning continues this weekend. Have a Dyno trip scheduled on Tuesday to get the 91 numbers.

    Just curious if there was a baseline dyno at the same place?
